Master cylinder front brake bleed

2004 R1150GS
I removed the ABSi system due to a servo failure and converted my brakes to standard a little while ago.
Today, I ordered new lines from Spielger but just now thought of something - My bike has no master cylinder bleed nipple.
Will I have a problem getting all of the air out of the lines without one? I ask this because I have always bleed my own brakes annually over the years but never had to start from scratch with a dry system which is what I will be doing after I replace the lines.

Every video I have seen online shows a tech utilizing a master cylinder bleed screw which my bike does not have. Would buying one of those MityVac things prevent any problems?

Thanks for any input.
